The BBC wants to coding to become as fundamental as writing, and is taking some very practical steps to ensure that happens.
This is brilliant. The UK already has a huge initiative to include more STEM education into its K-12 curriculum–much more than the US, which I’ve posted about here before. But this is taking things to a whole new level! I know it can add up a bit, but why isn’t some big American company like Comcast or Microsoft or Adobe or someone like that kicking off something like that here? It’d be a better use of charitable funds than some of those goofy adverts on TV.
Bravo, BBC, on this effort!
